Description

consider adding an option to warn me when I message someone not on my buddy list

Too often do I message someone I didn't intend to.

For example this afternoon I chatted with "the" for a while, before I realized I wasn't actually /msging the person I meant to.

Another option would be to have it automagically add people to my buddy list (or offer to) when I msg them.

It would make more sense to add a warning when someone who you don't know messages you, not the other way around. This adds a lot of complication and not many people use the buddy list anyway. The buddy list has enough flaws if people change their nicks, etc. And we are definitely not adding the option to 'automatically add' people to the buddy list.

  • Severity changed from blocker to normal
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

I could have been more clear. The "warning" I refer to could be a banner, or first line of text when you enter the private chat with them which said something like:
<< Note: xenon is not on your buddy list. Click to _add xenon_ as a buddy. >>

Just a thought. Someone (like me) could probably write a plugin to do this sort of thing anyway.
